A Portrait of Holy Women: Arranged (2007)

The film Agora has a great line: "There is more that unites us than divides us." Difference is important and to be honored, but that does not mean we are at odds with each other. The joy, the doubt, the faith, the struggle and the striving to be a good person are core things we all share, regardless of faith. They are things Rochel and Nasira share and find to be the basis of a deep friendship for all their differences. Together they realize they are not alone, and that they are in no way less for being committed to their faith. This is a film worth watching and discussing with the women of faith in your lives.

Arranged (2007) is available on DVD, and at the time of writing is available for streaming on Netflix.
